The Encyclopedia of the Exquisite is a book after my own heart. I love the title and I love the premise. Author Jessica Kerwin Jenkins was an editor at W magazine and while covering stories around the world, kept a folder full of interesting clippings, photos and "other ephemera." She said recently, "every time I came across something that was just breathtakingly lovely, something that made me sigh with wonder, into the file it went." Sounds like every blogger I know. Her files have now been compiled into a book that Michael Kors declared, "a wonderful melange of chic and amusing tidbits" that made him smile. I love learning new things and I have a feeling I will also be smiling with delight at this exquisite little book. Also looks like a perfect gift for the holidays!
